Publication Forum is a classification of publication channels created by the Finnish scientific community to support the quality assessment of academic research.
Publication Forum invites the research community to participate in the re-evaluation of levels 2 and 3. The re-evaluation will be carried out in 2022.
The Publication Forum Steering Group has updated the instructions and evaluation criteria for classification of publication channels. Updates will take effect from the beginning of 2022.
The report examines the international context and organisation of the JUFO classification, the characteristics of JUFO levels as a quality indicator of universities’ publishing performance, and the trends of scholarly publishing in Finland.
The Steering Group of the Publication Forum has updated the user guide for the Publication Forum classification. The user guide contains recommendations on the responsible use of the classification.
